Two France-based robotics companies are partnering to create a knee replacement system.
ECential Robotics and Amplify Surgical will leverage their technologies into one platform, according to an April 26 news release. ECential is the first unified 2D and 3D robotic imaging and navigation system for bone surgery. Amplify Surgical is known for its total knee replacement technology and proprietary system, Amplivision.
"This collaboration marks a step forward in our strategy, offering surgeons the possibility to optimize their surgical technique, not only with navigation, but with robotic assistance," Amplitude Surgical CEO Olivier Jallabert said in the release. "The fruit of this collaboration will allow Amplitude to compete with major players in this segment, with an innovative robotic solution."
